The Beachcomber


Published 1938


AKA Vessel of Wrath.

If you enjoy Somerset Maugham stories, then you will enjoy this near-perfect, delightful film adaptation.
The characters catch the essence of Maugham, and both Charles Laughton and Elsa Lanchester (husband and wife team) breath life into two very opposite sorts of people who discover--through adversity--that they have more in common than they dreamed possible


Run time 87 min
Producer Charles Laughton, Erich Pommer

Subject: Quality Film
The executive function really comes out toward the end of the film. Charles Laughton becomes more convincing as a character. I'll always enjoy this as a product of the "Edwardian Era".

Subject: Quite fun
I've always been very fond of Somerset Maugham's books and found movie to be quite entertaining. A nice way to spend a relax and enjoy Sunday evening.

I'm a Charles Laughton fan so of course I like it.
You could waste your time in worse ways.
